It's one of the simplest healthy party snacks to make: Top a small slice of Italian bread with a gorgeous mixture of tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and basil and voila—you've got bruschetta. (Watch how it’s done!) And though that piece of bread doesn't yield much nutritional value—whole grain options can help— the marriage of tomatoes and olive oil cranks up the disease-prevention quotient. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found to ward off cancer and heart disease. You've no doubt heard about the healthy fats found in olive oil. In addition, that oil actually helps your body absorb some of the nutrients in the tomatoes, says Melinda Johnson, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association and an associate professor of nutrition at the Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.

Ignoring the will of the people by allowing electors deviate from it or by turning ove the states votes to the national popular vote further distances elected officials from their constituents.
